We had a wonderful two night stay at this resort as part of our Caravan tour of Panama. The rooms were very comfortable with a great balcony and a hammock to relax on with a fantastic view of Gatun Lake and the rainforest. We loved sitting outside early in the morning listening to the birds of the rainforest waking up... More

We opted to stay here on the way back from a family trip do Galapagos. We had a very nice loft type room (kids aged 7 and 9 loved staying on the top floor). Lovely view from the balcony, with an amazing dawn chorus of birds between 06:00-07:00am. We had issues with the room on the night we arrived (no... More

Our first experience upon arriving was exceptional. The resort is beautiful and exceptionally clean. When my trip did not go as planned Mr. Peeples, the resort manager, showed exceptional time, care and personal attention in a very trying situation. I would highly recommend this vacation resort for its beautiful setting, and the wonderful careing staff.

The Gamboa Rainforest Resort is a beautiful property with a view of the Chagres River. We had a junior suite and it was clean and roomy. There was an upstairs loft with another bedroom and a second full bathroom. Our covered patio overlooked the pool area and the river. It is very remote and tropical. But the walls are thin... More

Tours are well organized and very entertaining. We went in the "green" season so hotel was fairly laid back. The rain only happened for about 30-60mins each day and didn't affect our plans. Room was comfortable, except for the fact that we did not have hot water for 3 of the 4 days we spent there. Highly recommend the tram... More

The resort is located in a huge area right beside the rainforest and the Canal. Our Deluxe River-View Room is large, equipped with a large king-size bed, couch, desk, a balcony with a hammock, two chairs and a table. A fan is installed, what makes the stay on the balcony very comfortable. Please make sure that your room is at... More

There is no denying that this place is breathtaking. The sweeping lobby view and grand hotel atmosphere are just want you want for a comfortable rainforest lodge experience. I chose this hotel because I was traveling with a toddler and didn't want to drag her on a long journey from the city. It definitely allowed us to get a rainforest... More

This is a very beautiful hotel, with extensive grounds for wildlife searching; we found quite a lot. They do a night tour with a small open bus, which was worth joining, at least once. Our room was very nice and we appreciated the efficient dehumidifier (and learned to empty it). Nice view from the balcony and a lovely pool area.... More

Phenomenal experience for my family. Gamboa Rainforest is a completely isolated resort in the town of Gamboa. It is very hard to find if you do not have a GPS, but it is worthy! Astonishing view of the rainforests from almost every angle of the resort. We had a hammock in the balcony of the room which was a pleasant... More
